    An easy and relaxed (if headachy) start to the trip back home on the Sunday making sure you don't go aground on the way back down the river.

    Let's go to Bembridge

    Bembridge marina beckons for an overnight stay.  This exceptionally friendly marina has been improved over the years and definitely warrants a visit.  This short rally will allow you to sample the delights of navigating the twists and turns of the channel to sample a well earned pint once happily docked.  Tom Cunliffe is a great fan of Bembridge so check out his YouTube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGSRBssEQkM).

    The Pilot Boat Inn is the nominated stop for the evening and promises to be an excellent venue for a light healthy supper and a glass of Chablis.
